I believe that he meant for a man and a women to get togather in marriage and reproduce a family. Answer I believe it was God who said that and not Jesus; Gen.1 . [ 22 ] And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply , and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply… in the earth. . [ 28 ] And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply , and replenish the earth, Gen.9 .

[ 11 ] And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply ; Answer He was saying to spread the good news (God's word) to others, not that they should go off and have kids!

Jesus Christ identifies Himself as follows: Jesus Christ is: . The Beginning . The way, the truth and the life. . The light of the world . The End (John 8:12) Again, therefore, Jesus spake to them, saying, `I am the light of the world; he who is following me shall not walk in the darkne…ss, but he shall have the light of the life.' (John 14:6) Jesus saith to him, `I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one doth come unto the Father, if not through me;' Jesus when He says, `I am the way, and the truth, and the life', He does not mean that He possesses the truth or is speaking the truth but He means it in a much more literal "way", that He is Truth itself. And because this is true then all that comes from Him is Truth. Even the use of the word "way" alludes to the more literal meaning. In that, He is referring to the way (path) and that path is made up of Truth (Christ), and if you live and follow the Truth then you will experience Reality, whereas Truth is what makes up Reality.

Jesus meant that we all thirst for something...think about it, we all have an empty space deep down. A space that only Jesus can fill.
One as in mission or purpose, YES. One as both being God, NO.. Jesus made it abundantly clear that He is one with the Father, not just in mission but in His very essence or person. 'I and the Father are one'. 'Before Abraham was 'I AM.' Jesus also forgave sin, something only God could do.
The phrase is based on the "concept" of the moment at which you decide to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, but it has a secular meaning.

Jesus meant that He was the one you should follow. You should follow Him the way a shepherd's sheep follow him. If you follow Jesus like sheep follow a shepherd, you will be lead to the Holy Land. At the end of the world, it is said that there will be a whole bunch of fakes saying, "come with me! I… know where God is!" But all in all they are lying and he is the GOOD shepherd. Not the ones who are talking to talk or lead you to Hell. ( Full Answer )
dieing Coming to Jesus would be being saved, accepting him by faith that he died and rose again and is alive so that we can live. Read the Bible for yourself and he will reveal himself to you.
Answer The true meaning of course Jesus or John, who wrote the verse 19:30 has to give. We can assume some:. My life is finished, their erucifixion is finished, they finished me before I finish my work, the vinegar given to drink is finish or god's word is finished
First of all, His name is Yeshua not Jesus. Yeshua was named by Yahwei, God Almighty, as His Only Begotton Son. His name means God (Yah) is my salvation. Yeshua was God's seed put into a virgin woman (Myriam) uniting with one of her eggs thus creating the first and Only Begotton creature from Yahwei…. Thus, Yeshua was God and Man as one. That is why Satan tried to tempt Him with food, Physical wealth, and the kingdoms of this world - he tried to change God's plan. However, Yeshua was found faithful and never sinned. That is why he could die for us and take our sin for us - on the cross he became sin and went to hell to take the keys to death, hell and the grave. When Mary Magdalene saw him on resurection morning, He told her to not touch Him - He had to go to Heaven to be cleansed from the sins of the world by His Father. Later, he came back to earth and revealed Himself to His followers. Then He told them to feel His hands and see for themselves the scars of His torture and death. Since He was found faithful, He is the epidomy of salvation and now is glorified! That is why we must do everything in His name: prayer, salvation, teaching, preaching, etc. His is our justification and Saviour. Through following His commandments for salvation, we are made "good" or complete and He becomes are elder brother. Thus, we also become Sons of Yahwei. Read the Book of Acts and you will find every believer came to salvation by hearing a preacher preach about Yeshua. They then repented of their sins, were baptized in water immediately, and received the life-giving - spiritman conception indwelling of the Ruach Hakodesh (Spirit of God) known as the Holy Ghost. Yeshua told His followers that "I will not leave you comfortless." Acts one states for them to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promise - the out-pouring of the Holy Ghost. They did and in Acts 2 it tells the story.. Also, Romans chapters 1-8 unlocks more understanding about what happens in this experience. Through our justification through Him we are glorified and acceptable to petition Yahwei Himself and will pass from death unto Life - We will not taste of death!. Hope this helps! ( Full Answer )

Jesus said: Love one another because loving one another means caring one another and help one another.
The Hebrew word Messiah means "the anointed". In earlier times, kings were anointed to show that they were accepted as rightful kings of Judah; the practice was also followed when high priests were appointed. The Greek translation of Messiah is Christ . After the Babylonian Exile ended the J…udahite monarchy, the expectation grew that, one day, a new leader would come and would lead Judah to military victory over its enemies. This leader would be anointed and would be known as the Messiah. The Gospels have Jesus saying he was the Messiah, or Christ, not as the military leader that most Jews expected, but a spiritual Messiah who would lead his people to a spiritual victory.

Answer . He simply is ... . Answer: . That is a clinical kind of a question that can't be answered to the satisfaction of the carnal mind, because it's dealing with "spirit." . The natural, human, carnal mind can't understand "infinity." It can't fathom "forever." Our very existence is bound i…n limitations and deceptions. Our five physical senses that send life's "physical data" information to our brain for analysis, assessment, sorting and filing into all the impossible mental folders and categories that make up our existence... that programs our developing personality... are deceptive. . God's name is "ETERNAL." . Among many others... His name is "I AM." That is - HE IS... HE EXISTS. It's a form of the verb - TO BE. His name is literally: "WAS, IS, SHALL BE"... or in the closest English translation: "ETERNAL." He has no beginning and no end. . And the finite human mind cannot accept that. ( Full Answer )

Why do Catholics pray to saints when Jesus said the only way to the Father is through Him it never mentions in the Bible to pray to saints?
In reality, we do not so much as pray 'to' the saints as 'through' the saints. We ask them to join us in our prayers to God for a special intention. It is no different than asking a friend to pray for you or your intentions. The saints are part of the Mystical Body of Christ, as we also are if we ar…e in God's favor. Another term is the Communion of Saints. We are one big family divided only by our current state of existence. ( Full Answer )
He was quoting that word for word from Deuteronomy 6:4,5, just like He had previously mentioned Moses a couple of verses prior.
God wanted to show that He is an Almighty God-- that He could perform all sorts of miracles. Note: Mary did not have any relationship with anyone
He also said "Thou shalt not live by bread alone but by every word the proceedeth forth from the mouth of God". Christ is the bread of life in that His words will help save us in the kingdom of God. The bread that we eat as food is to help keep us alive while here on the earth
Jesus came from Heaven, from above, and His disciples chose to follow him, knowing that they would suffer, but that they would have an eternal reward in Heaven, thus they wouldn't be of this world either. Another Thought Scripture says that those who are born again are a "new creation in Christ… Jesus." Scripture also says that believers in Christ are citizens of heaven. Jesus is making a fundamental statement that there are two classes of men and women, those who are of this world and those who are not. Much, much more is wrapped up in this concept and would take more room than is offered here. Suffice it to say that Christ declares Himself and His followers "not of this world." To get a better feel for this divide, read the book of John, chapter 17. In fact, read John 15:18 through John 17:26. ( Full Answer )
You can find the answer in the question itself. Son has all the characteristic of a father because if you sow a mango tree you will get mangoes only. similarly Jesus has always preached the message of father has a good son and wanted all of us to go back to our father. As jesus is a son we are also …sons and daughters only difference is jesus is an obidient son and cares about every son and daughter. Those who believe in jesus message will surely go back to father (God). Heaven. Answer I'm not sure where the previous answerer got his theology from, but it certainly wasn't the Bible. Jesus throughout his ministry made it very clear just who he is - God in human form. Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to accept this citing individual verses out of context to back up heretical views. Yet Jesus made it very clear just who he was and is. . Throughout his ministry he 'taught with authority' in showing his authority to break Levitical law. His phrase used was 'you have heard it said that..... but I tell you...". To the Jew this meant one thing. That jesus, far from being a subservient son of God, was the manifestation of God in human form. . He accepted worship. At the end of Matthew's Gospel, Jesus accepted the worship of the disciples. The wise men worshipped him. Contrary to the JW teaching where they translate this as 'deference' the Greek used 'proskuneo' is reserved for worship of God alone. . He forgave sins. Not in God's name but in his own . This was the height of blasphemy unless Jesus was exactly who he claimed to be - God with us, Emmanuel. On occasions the chief priests went to stone him for blasphemy because 'he claimed to be God'. Of course, to preserve the JW heresy, the New World Translation of the Bible records these incidences as the priests saying ' he claimed to be a god'. Yet they do not explain why the priests regarded him as blasphemous merely by claiming to be 'a god'. Blasphemy is reserved for the desecration of God alone. Again Jesus would be guilty of the worst blasphemy unless he was God incarnate. . He performed miracles - only God could do this. Others before and since, of course, performed miracles - Moses, Peter and so on - but always in God's (or Jesus') name. But Jesus performed miracles in his own name . This means that when Jesus answered the questions of the disciples he did so in the knowledge that he was God incarnate. When the disciples asked Jesus what the Father looked like he replied - 'he who has seen me has seen the Father' . The meaning of 'The Father and I are One' is therefore crystal clear. Bearing in mind Jesus' own claims, here he states categorically that He and the Father are one and the same. Far from being a subservient 'son' of the Jehovah's Witness belief, Jesus is God himself in human form. Answer: Yes. [John 10:30] ( Full Answer )
People who believe in Jesus who haven't seen him believe by faith and are blessed as opposed with people who actually walked with him, having had an extra reason to believe. It's easier to believe what you see than what you don't see.

John 14:6 says, "Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Christ said-- No one shall enter the kingdom of heaven except through me Aren't you worried that you're taking the wrong path?
No. Krishna and Buddha said similar things. Also, Ramakrishna had a spiritual experience of merging with Christ. He felt his oneness with Christ, Rama, and Krishna. How can we explain this? There are three possible explanations: â¢ These great teachers at times felt totally identified with the o…ne Reality. It is in this sense that they used the word "me". â¢ They were talking to a local group of people who were not going to hear about other incarnations of God. â¢ Their teachings were altered by others coming later who wanted power and control over people.

It means that communications, prayers and supplications directed to the Father will only be heard by those whose faith and trust is in His Son. Those whom Jesus knows, personally... whom His Father has given to Him... and whom Jesus acknowledges to His Father that HE KNOWS THEM [Matt.7:23]. "Whos…oever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I deny before My Father which is in heaven." (Matt.10:32-33) "All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him." (Matt.11:27) As "intolerant" and "hateful" as the world may think it to be: According to the Bible... the common belief among many religions that all men ultimately worship the same God, and that there are many paths to salvation through any number of gods, isn't true. One's faith and trust in Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and to His Father in heaven. Another Response: When Jesus is quoted as saying, "No man comes to the Father but by me," he can be understood as referring to obedience to his own teachings as well as to the attitude and actions of love by which followers of Christ are distinguished. For example, in Luke 8:20 and 22, Jesus says, "My Mother and my Brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it." And in John 15, Jesus says, "This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you." When read and understood in this manner, the requirements of Jesus of Nazareth are identical with that of the Hebrew prophet, Micah 6:8, "What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love mercy, and walk humbly with your God?" So by the sacrificial life and death of Jesus Christ, the way "to the Father" is open to any and all persons - not only men or only members of a particular religion or race - who follow (live) in the way of justice, kindness, humility and love.

This is to be found in Mark 9:1, where it foreshadows Mark chapter 13. The reference is intended to be an introduction to the fuller statement in chapter 13, because the two statements are paired in Mark 's chiastic structure. In Mark 9:1, Jesus briefly tells the disciples that some of them see the… kingdom of God come to earth before they die. This goes unremarked until, in chapter 13 Jesus prophesies the end of the world and his own return on clouds of glory, during the lifetimes of those then living. The references to the destruction that occurred in the late 60s gives an indication of when this was expected to occur. Jesus told his listeners that they would see the Temple destroyed, and the abomination of desolation, followed by the Son of man coming in clouds of glory, and that this would take place during their own generation. Mark 9:1 was copied more or less faithfully as Matthew 16:28 and Luke 9:27, but we find it ceases to be an introduction to their versions of the second, fuller passage, which the two later evangelists revised, with good reason. By the 80s of the first century, when Matthew's Gospel was written, the return predicted in Mark's Gospel was becoming unlikely - the generation had already passed - and the author of Matthew had to change the emphasis away from an impending end of the world. While copying as faithfully as possible from Mark, he changed the position of the sentence about "this generation", relative to the destruction of the great buildings, so that it referred to something else altogether. He added, and emphasised, material where Jesus told the disciples that the end is not yet, and that no man knows when the end of the world will occur. Matthew 24:21 talks of great tribulation that will be followed by the end of the world and the second coming. Luke was somewhat later than Matthew and even more clearly could not say that the destruction of Jerusalem meant the end of the world. This gospel talks about the end of the world as vaguely in the future, keeping the reference to this generation, but in reference to the need to preach the gospel. The authors of Matthew and Luke may not have even realised that the author of Mark intended this passage as an introduction to the fuller passage. By amending their versions of the main passage, they left Matt 16:28 and Luke 9:27 hanging as obscure oracles that seems meaningless. It is only in Mark that we see it as a paired introduction to the prophecy that the world will end within the lifetimes of some of the disciples. Answer: This is actually covered in Matthew, Mark and Luke under the "transfiguration" account. Jesus is quoted at the end of Matthew 16: "Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom." (Matt.16:28) And takes up again with chapter 17: "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them..." (Matt.17:1-2). Mark relates the account in chapter 9... not 13. "And He said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power..." (Mark 9:1). Luke 9:27 says: "...I tell you the Truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Kingdom of God." Matthew reveals that what Peter, John and James saw was a "VISION" of the Kingdom [17:9], with Jesus, Moses and Elijah appearing to them in their "glorified" state. The three men saw Jesus then as John describes Jesus in Revelation as He appears now at His Father's throne in heaven [compare: Matt.17:2 with Rev.1:13-16]. To be sure... all of Judaea was anticipating the establishment of the Kingdom of God on the earth around that time, because all the prophecies seemed to be pointing to it. Jesus' disciples eagerly expected Him to produce it on many occasions during their three-and-a-half years walking with Him... especially, with His promise that they would be ruling the Kingdom with Him on their own thrones: "...ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel." (Matt.19:28) They were disappointed time and time, again for three years... and devastated on the night of Jesus' arrest and subsequent murder the next day. They had no clue. Expectation of the return of Jesus Christ has been entertained by every generation since then. Rome's destruction of the Temple looked like the end of the world to them. Napoleon... World War I... World War II, were all seen by many as events signalling what men call the "end of the world" and Jesus' return. It's the anticipation of it... and the misunderstanding of the prophecies... that's kept it alive and urgent and vital in the minds and hearts of believers. If any one of the generations since Jesus' ascension into heaven had known it was going to take over 2000-plus years before Jesus returned, and that they were going to be dead and mouldering in the grave for centuries, how "enthusiastic" might they have been about spreading the "good news" of the Kingdom? [which is actually not being preached so much in these last days] When Paul wrote to the Thessalonians... it's evident that even he thought he would be one of the saints who would be ALIVE when Jesus "gathered" them into the clouds. "...then WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN shall be caught up together with them [ 'THEM' are the DEAD IN CHRIST who shall be resurrected BEFORE the ones that are alive on the earth are gathered] in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air..." (I Thess.4:17). But, for the three men whom Jesus took into the mountain with Him that day -- they "saw the Kingdom of God before they died" as Jesus promised... in a VISION ... and kept it to themselves as commanded, until after Jesus raised from the dead. And recorded it for us, today. It was a "vision" that they saw. That's what Jesus meant. ( Full Answer )

The earliest mention of Jesus talking about his second coming is in Mark 9:1: " And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power ." Mark chapter 13 provides a fuller pro…phecy of the second coming, describing the events of the First Roman-Jewish War and the Jerusalem civil war of 70 CE, then says that this will be followed by the return of the Son of man: (Mark 13:24-26) " But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. " Of course, this prophecy did not come to pass, but at the time of writing (about 70 CE), it certainly seemed as if the end was nigh. By the 80s of the first century, when Matthew's Gospel was written, the return predicted in Mark's Gospel was becoming unlikely - the generation had already passed - and the author of Matthew realised that Mark's prophecy had to be corrected. In Matthew chapter 24, while copying as faithfully as possible from Mark , he changed the emphasis away from an impending end of the world and changed the position of the sentence about "this generation", relative to the destruction of the great buildings, so that it referred to something else altogether. He added, and emphasised, material where Jesus told the disciples that the end is not yet, and that no man knows when the end of the world will occur. ( Full Answer )
Jesus said this to Martha whose brother Lazarus was dead. Martha believed that at his prayer God would give any thing, (Joh 11:22) but he was telling her that by his word he could work anything. Martha believed in a resurrection at the last day (Joh 11:24) Christ tells her that he had that powe…r lodged in his own hand, that the dead were to hear his voice (Joh_5:25), and infers that He who could raise a world of men that had been dead many ages could doubtless raise one man that had been dead but four days. Resurrection is a return to life; Christ is the author of that return, and of that life. We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, and Christ is both; the author and principle of both, and the ground of our hope of both. ( Full Answer )

Being King of the Jews has a spiritual connotation that's higher than simply being the King of the Israelis. Jews are Jews by choice: by faith and obedience to God's word they are adherents. An Israeli is an Israeli by birth: a citizen. There's no choice involved. He meant He was a descendant of Kin…g David, by blood, DNA, and by the Spirit, and that the Jewish throne, with all its rights and prerogatives, rightfully belonged to Him. At this writing, it is Christmas time. It's a curiosity of Christmas that the wise men said they were following the star of the King of the Jews (Matthew 2:2). When He subsequently hung on the cross, Pilate had a title put on the cross: Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews (John 19:19). [Curiosity: Both these references are composed entirely of repeated prime numbers.] That constitutes the testimony of two witnesses (more, actually). In addition to everything else He was, Jesus was the King of the Jews. Another Answer : As the promised one whom Moses spoke of and David wrote of, Jesus fulfilled the Sceptre Promise placed upon Judah (4th son of Israel) and assumed the eternal Throne of David - making Him King of kings and Lord of lords. Additionally, the tribe of Judah (Jews) was given the awesome responsibility to keep, record, and maintain the inspired word - called the 'oracles of God' for all mankind. Each of the other 11 sons of Israel called Israelites had been told their futures with Joseph's two sons - Ephraim and Manasseh receiving the Birthright Promise (see Genesis 48 and 49).

In my opinion, ENOUGH TIMES, for anyone with a shred of logic to know that 'Son' and 'Father' cannot be 1+1 =1 . Jesus called out with a loud voice, " Father , into your hands I commit my spirit."

Answer: The only source to answer the question comes from the New Testament. We can not "prove" anything in this matter. It is a matter of faith in the Bible and whether or not it is credible. There is Scriptural data for Christ's claim to divinity: *The early creedal formula "Jesus is Lord [ k…yrios ]": 1 Cor. 12:3; Phil. 2:11. *The title "Son of God" ("Son of" implies "of the same nature as."): Matt. 11:27; Mark 12:6; 13:32; 14:61-62; Luke 10:22; 22:70; John 10:30; 14:9. *The New Testament calls him "God": Titus 2:13; 1 John 5:20; Romans 9:5; John 1:1. *Absolutely, universal supreme: Col. 1:15-20. *Eternally preexistent: John 1:1; Phil. 2:6; Hebrews 13:8; Rev. 22:13. *Omnipresent: Matt. 18:20; 28:20. *Omnipotent: Matt. 28:18; Hebrews 1:3; Rev. 1:8. *Immutable: Hebrews 1:11-12; 13:8. *Creates (only God can create): Col. 1:16-17; John 1:3; 1 Cor. 8:6; Hebrews 1:10. *Sinless, perfect: Hebrews 7:26; John 8:46; 2 Cor. 5:21. *Has authority to forgive sins: Mark 2:5-12; Luke 24:45-47; Acts 10:43; 1 John 1:5-9. *Rightly worshipped: Matt. 2:11; 14:33; 28:9; John 20:28; Hebrews 1:5-9. *Called "King of kings and Lord of Lords": 1 Timothy 6:15; Rev. 17:14. *One with the Father: John 10:30; 12:45; 14:8-10. *Performed miracles: John 10:37-38; and throughout all four Gospels. *Sends the Holy Spirit: John 14:25-26; 16:7-15. *The Father testifies to him: Matt. 3:17; 17:5; John 8:18; 1 John 5:9. *Gives eternal life: John 3:16; 5:39-40; 20:30-31. *Is Lord over the Law: Luke 6:1-5.

I think this is just one of the many errors of "religion". A lot ofso called "Christian" religions have teaching and rites etc thatwere not found in the New Testament Churches.
John 7:1-9 The Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was at hand in Jerusalem and Jesus' unbelieving brothers asked Him why are you waiting around, go to the feast. Jesus answered them saying "My time has not come yet." In other words Jesus was completely dependant on the Father's direction and the Father had… not told Him to go to Jerusalem. (Jesus was in constant contact with the Father and obeyed Him). In the first verse we are told that the Jews sought to kill Jesus. Jesus knew that a time was coming for Him to die on the cross of Calvary, but this was not the time. Jesus answered, "But your time is always ready". The unbelieving brothers were not under God's time table, they didn't even believe so they could do whatever. Their time was any time. ( Full Answer )
Jesus was born in flesh just like we were, and he entered into theworld into a poor family of carpenters and was faced with the sametemptations we were. The only difference: he never sinned, and wesin every day.
